    2018 Yamaha BB734A. I'm adding this one to my list of basses on the market. I'm running out of room in my house and I'm wanting to continue being married to a wonderful woman. I don't have to sell all of em, just one or two and I'm golden.

    Shipped in the Con US for $550 I think that's a good deal.

    This bass is in wonderful shape, the only signs of wear I see on it are typical play wear on the pickguard. The guy I got it from was a pick user. Body wise it's near pristine, with one or two very slight signs of use. It's set up with low action and sports a not broken in yet set of my go to strings, Dunlop flatwounds. Active / Passive switch. 20190731_195146.
    3 band EQ. When in passive mode, the Treble knob turns into a passive tone knob.

    Bass comes in the very nice Yamaha gig bag. The price includes shipping within the Con US. Paypal suffices.

    Gigged her last night. 2 things I noted, the neck is just so "stable" feeling like it just feels substantial, although not thick, it just feels solid. It's very easy to get around on. The other thing is the sound. I would play more subdued songs in passive mode, with the tone rolled of a smidge. That gave me some great thump. Then for the harder/louder stuff I'd kick it to active with the bass and treble boosted a tad.
    When the guitarists start doing their inevitable volume hikes, I can do the same with the active eq and not have to futz with the amp.

    I attempt to keep an open mind.

    I have one of these. I have to agree the neck being a 5 piece is super stable. I see someone added a thumb rest. A very versatile bass that can go from old school p bass to modern scooped sound.
